If you’re looking for a spring getaway on a budget, Wichita is your destination. Explore a wildlife exhibit in Central Riverside Park, take photos of the gorgeous gardens in Wichita’s Botanica, bike along more than 60 miles of the city’s bike-friendly paths, attend the Great Plains Renaissance Festival and get up close with animals at Tanganyika Wildlife Park. If you’re looking for a hotel to spend the weekend consider Hotel at Old Town, Aloft Wichita or Wichita Marriott.
